The event aims to strengthen cooperation and knowledge exchange between researchers from the Nordic States represented in the Nordic Council of Regional Studies Association (Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, and Sweden). The researchers from mainly Nordic countries will present the most recent results of their studies during parallel sessions. Keynote presenters from Norway, Estonia and Czech Republic are invited as well.

The 9th NoRSA Conference presents an opportunity to discuss and debate most recent issues related to regional studies and regional policy and to develop links for future cooperation. The conference organisers are keen to attract papers, which identify new fields of enquiry, address broad research agendas at local and regional levels. Papers which are highly innovative, collaborative, international or multi-disciplinary are especially welcome.
